Types of Pedestrian Injuries Caused by Car Accidents

Pedestrian accidents are some of the most dangerous and most violent accidents on our roads. Because pedestrians are among the most vulnerable accident victims, the injuries they suffer can be immense. If a motorist’s negligence leaves you injured in a pedestrian accident, seek the professional legal counsel of an experienced Atlanta pedestrian accident attorney at Ahmad Injury Law. 
 

Your Injuries

The injuries pedestrians suffer in traffic accidents are often life-threatening, including the following:
 

  • Broken Bones – A broken bone is an exceptionally painful injury that is also slow to heal. Multiple broken bones and/or a bone that suffers a complicated break makes the matter that much more serious.
  • Traumatic Brain Injuries – A traumatic brain injury (TBI) can upend your life in an instant. Because these injuries affect the brain, it is exceptionally difficult to predict their effects and their dangerous trajectories.
  • Spinal Cord Injuries – Even a relatively minor spinal cord injury can lead to chronic pain and a serious decrease in range of motion. If the spinal cord is severed, however, the injury can lead to permanent paralysis.
